Mariposa Beach (T 120) is located on the southern side of 200 m long Mariposa Point. The east-southeast-facing sandy beach extends south for 350 m before grading into a boulder beach. This is a well exposed beach receiving waves averaging up to 1.5 m, which break across a 50-100 m wide surf zone usually dominated by 1 to 2 rips, together with rocks in the surf zone to either end. It is backed by a 10 m high vegetated and often scarped foredune, and small pond, with the Four Mile Creek Road reaching the coast at the southern end of the beach. A private house backs the northern end of the beach.
